The Economist has some bad news for us: the “new normal” of living life with the coronavirus is here, and we’re all just going to have to get used to it (despite a certain president’s promise to “shut down the virus”). The problem is we’re not sure what the new normal is. Is it wearing cloth masks? Because now they’re telling us those are nothing more than facial decoration. Is it getting a fourth dose of the COVID vaccine?

Whatever it is, The Economist assures us that the COVID pandemic is like a doorway: once you pass through, there’s no going back.

All jokes aside, it would be nice if some of our leaders would realize they can’t mandate COVID-19 out of existence.
